I do not have a parking pass but often wish I did. I've nearly been run over on multiple occasions because I cannot hear cars coming. It's hard for the average person to understand, but being deaf is scary, and I totally understand why someone would want the pass.I know a few deaf people that have handicapped parking permits/license plates.
Their states provide them for deaf people.
I find it offensive to those that really need the parking space, especially those who are in wheelchairs. If you can walk, walk.
I've heard a multitude of ridiculous excuses that got me laughing. Heard everything from "deaf people can't hear burglars sneaking up on them" all the way to "deaf people have been suffering, need a break".
So, tell me, if you have HC plates, why do you think you need them if you are physically able to walk?
